Faith at Every Day Fiction

...and yes, I've realized there is a misused word in the last paragraph. Yes, adsorbed is a "real word". It just doesn't mean to permeate the skin.

So, if you can stomach a little vocabulary infraction and some Nyotaimori, read "Faith". Let me know what you think. The story came about after reading a random news bit about the "dish".

Today, dear NaNoWriMos, investigate your protagonist's deepest beliefs. These will bubble to the surface in times of trial, either crushed by circumstance or strengthened.

The Tibetan prayer flags are in honor of K.V. Taylor's wonderful entry, "Boudha" in Grant's Pass. Have a lovely Saturday.

Loved the story, loved the punch of it, of every word. I posted there too, but it needs saying twice!

Belief is one of my favorite things to explore about a character-- couldn't give better advice! Mmm prayer flags, that's a lovely picture. I have some similar ones from the drive into Lhasa. Brings back good memories.

Thanks for the kind words about Boudha!

Natalie - the wonders one can find on Flickr.

Katey - No, thank you for writing the story.

That's a fine story, Aaron, beautifully told.

BTW, the 'adsorbed' has been fixed, but there's another: 'laugher' for 'laughter' in the third para. Not that it matters or detracts from the story. Just thought I'd mention it in case you republish it.
